ECOTIP D3.1. Mechanistic, trait-based model for unicellular plankton

Visser, Andre W.

This deliverable supplies a demonstration of the unicellular component (essentially phytoplankton, bacteria and
micro zooplankton) of a generalized trait-based plankton model, and is a direct output from Task 3.1 Generalized
trait-based model of plankton. It outlines and documents the scientific basis of the model and provides a list of
parameters and algorithms. The deliverable includes sample output from the model. The model is validated through
comparison with observations on a global scale, as well as through sensitivity analysis of parameter values. Finally,
the deliverable outlines steps towards integration, in a trait-based model of the pelagic environment that explicitly
simulates both the unicellular and multicellular (metazoan and fish) components.
